Ocean Acidification October

It’s Ocean Acidification October at the Estuarium! Join us for a month dedicated to learning the causes and effects of ocean acidification and how we can change its course.

While Ocean Acidification October may only be a month long, the Estuarium is excited to debut two new permanent exhibits made possible by our #powerfulpartners at Puget Sound Energy.

Come explore our new “Ways to Make a Difference” exhibit featuring our hands-on enviroscape and tips to help you reduce your carbon footprint. While you’re at it, learn the ins and outs of ocean acidification with our ocean acidification science experiment!

Join us October 20th for a free admission day along with a wonderful Puget Sound Energy talk on getting the most out of your energy usage and reducing your carbon footprint from 1:00 – 2:00 PM.
